Great instructions, easy to follow for a beginner like me. The first try, I accidentally printed the pdf "fit to page" and didn't realise until i'd done all the sewing and tried it on!!! It was huge! Won't make that mistake again! Second time i made it in a beautiful Rayon fabric. I made a size 16, but it was a little big. Third time, I made it in a size 14 in a cotton and i'm really happy with the result! A great, easy to follow pattern!

I love my dress! As a fairly new sewer, I didn't have any issues following the pattern, it was very straightforward. I have broad shoulders, so I went a size up on the bodice and extended the sleeves and it turned out perfect! I couldn't be happier. I feel beautiful in this dress and I can't wait to wear it for summer! It is my favorite sewing project so far. Thank you!

I used this cape pattern as a base for making myself a period cloak. I lengthened the back and left the slits open.
